William Pitt: How about an explanation?
Now that you're posting again, might you give us all a full explanation of what happened concerning the Rove indictment/Jason Leopold/truthout fiasco several weeks back. You remember: the series of stories that had us all convinced that Rove would be indicted after 24 business hours or 48 or whatever?

No fair sneaking back into the forums without telling all of us chumps what the heck happened.

3. Thou shalt not ask for accountability ...
...ye shall bow thy head and baa in acquiescence as does the rest of the DU flock.

4. I don't have no dog in this fight
but

I don't think posting is "sneaking", and from what I remember, about a thousand threads already sorted that out.

Why not just read the words and respond to the ideas instead of trying to have a dog in the fight?

Why fight at all?

Is this personal? Did he take away your virginity, or something?

Sorry.

I really don't know the full extent of what caused this post, but it seems petty and vindictive for no reason.

I could be wrong.

5. Shit- cant someone get something wrong just one time?
I dont always agree with him either- but he sure did nail the WMD thingy better than any famous journalists out there.

I would say his record is pretty damn solid, compared to the past 6 years of WMDs, Swiftboats, Schivo, etc that the other "credible" journalists spoon fed us.

Hey Bill- if you are reading this, somebody still loves ya, Baby!!!

6. I would venture to guess that Leopold was probably right and Death
Star Cheney once again pulled off the impossible (to mere mortals) anyway. What HAVEN'T these assh*les gotten away with? Just sayin'.

8. Don't call Pitt a 'sneak' and why do you think he owes you an
explanation about anything? Are you God or something? I didn't think so.

You should be ashamed for posting this. Will has done more for this party than you ever will.

27. Now that sure looks like an attack
How do you know how much the OP has done for this party?

No one should ever be ashamed for wanting to know if information is true or not, and while I agree that Will Pitt certainly has every right, as much as anyone else to post here, I'd like to hear about that fiasco as well.. tho I imagine they might want to post it at their site and then link it here for us all to scratch our heads over :)

Let's not measure people by how much they've done, there are plenty of new folks that have no idea what some of the members here have done for the party..

12. I'll try this one....
Will never claimed direct knowledge-he said he trusted the people whom claimed direct knowledge, as in "I doubt they are lying".....thereby lending his considerable weight to the story.As best I can guess,some deal was in fact arranged.Myself,I am tired of people that to this day post snarky stuff against both Leopold and TO.And to bring Will's credibility in when he was a character witness is unfair....till the entire cabal is taken down and the history is written, I'll abstain....

But some people need to stop leaving their Histrionic Personality Disorders laying around where folks might trip over them.

25. Ready?
I can't.

Not because I don't want to, or because there isn't a good one. I do and there is. But any and all information on this issue is going to come from Marc Ash, and he is my boss, and that's how it is. I am required to abide by the rules of my employer, and that's one of them.

Sorry.

And, P.S., I've been a member here since April of 2001, so I'm not sneaking anywhere.

28. Locking
Calling out another member is against the rules. Also, in the future, if you see something like this, please just hit the Alert button instead of telling the poster why their thread will be locked. The mods will handle it.
